MANILA, Philippines – A training program on environmental governance will be launched by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the University of the Philippines tomorrow.

The UP Program for Environmental Governance or UPPEG is the newest program being offered by the country’s premier university. It aims to harness the multi-disciplinary expertise of the DENR and the UP System in the field of environmental governance.

“The training program is open to all government and private organizations that have a stake in effective environmental governance like the Department of the Interior and Local Government and people’s organizations,” Environment Secretary Ramon Paje said.

Twenty-two UP professors will be tapped as UPPEG trainers and 30 provincial environment and natural resources officers will compose the first batch of trainees.

“The trainers will promote the program’s objective, which is to strengthen the competence of environmental authorities,” Paje said, adding the experts will discuss policy formulation and analysis, transformational leadership, conflict resolution, effective communications skills, resource mobilization for business development and networking, environmental management planning, and managing environmental risks and resiliency.

The training will start tomorrow until Feb. 20 in UP campuses in Diliman in Quezon City, Los Baños in Laguna and in the Visayas; DENR’s Environment and Natural Resources Academy in Carranglan, Nueva Ecija, and DENR central office in QC.

Paje and UP president Alfredo Pascual will lead the launch at the UP Diliman’s Bahay ng Alumni.
